Monsters in the Night

1/28/03

Perhaps a little introduction is in order for this one:

A late night summer ride started out well, got ugly, got mean, got worse, then turned out all right. Bad guys punished, damsel in distress rescued, reluctant hero had nightmares for weeks.

I usually write up any interesting rides, but this was a bit too dark, too violent for my usual fare. I tried several times, but failed to produce anything coherent in story form. My journal entry for this day is a mess. The poem seemed to work, so here it is:

Monsters in the Night

Deep within the night
Where the monsters roam
I find myself among them
And so very far from home

Why have I come here?
I really cannot say
Forces in my soul said
I had to ride that day

The balmy midnight air
Really makes my spirit sing
The lust to ride, this need to see
Is a solid and tangible thing

In the night I find
A lady in distress
Honor is required
Can I pass this test?

Calm I am by nature
I have principles from my youth
The evil think this means Iím soft
Nothingís further from the truth

Attackers three, canít let them be
Intent is very plain
Only Iím in place to act
To prevent their causing pain

My courage does not fail me
Attackers are dissuaded
Strength's again my ally
They were forcefully persuaded

I rarely start a battle
Which is really just as well
Ďcause once itís clear that I must finish it
Iíll send them straight to Hell

Away she finally travels
Safety in the night
The cost for me was great
As I really hate to fight

The pain is vast, the bruises real
All will heal in time
I revel in the strength inside
Never gladder it is mine

I was brought here for a reason
Forces compelling me to roam
My task is finished, I am released
The Dragonís headed home

CUAgain,
Daniel Meyer
